Whether it be at a local bar, music festival, private party, or wedding reception, StrangeLady has been bringing people to the dance floor with an array of dynamic covers and original songs for almost 10 years.Recently, drawing upon a desire to take things in a much more funky direction, the band has joined forces with a powerhouse 3-piece horn section (Harris, McCraw, and Bristol) to create the ultimate funk experience. They have poured their souls into arranging some heavy original music, while curating an arsenal of the choicest funk and soul covers, designed to keep you dancing for hours on end.
